Rails update attributes not updating
As you may have noticed, there is a trend in Rails conventions where the logic for rendering a form is separate from the action that manages the database record alteration.
In fact, rich associations (habtm with attributes) have been deprecated and won't be supported at all come 2.0 release. Correct me if I'm wrong, but these are technically called "polymorphic joins" aren't they?In my edit form I simply cannot figure out why collection_select isn’t saving the various values when it's nested. It works fine if I use a and pull it outside of the fields_for event_types. I have tried many configurations regarding strong params.. At this point the meta class of the user object has the method set to 100 years ago. Now I need to put the object behavior back to normal.I open up the metaclass and call super on the method so that the method call will go up the chain. This strategy of opening up an instance object works but it is messy.
